Women in Science Day (February 2022)
Women in Science Day is an annual event that celebrates all the amazing things women have achieved.

Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science.
In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly declared 11th February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
St. Cuthbert’s researched some truly inspirational women who have changed the world.
